Very good fish restaurant in Horning. All six meals cooked excellently and would go back again. Service was good even when busy.

We decided out of the blue to eat seafood whilst staying at the Sprowston Marriott near Norwich. The Bure was a 15-minute drive from our hotel in a charming Broads village of Horning. The restaurant was clean and very inviting.The menu was extremely varied. The food was exceptional, in fact, I can honestly say that Cod with cockles was probably... More

This is an excellent seafood restaurant where prices are a little above average but you certainly get what you pay for. Attentive and friendly service and the highlight of the meal was my wife's skate. The decor is attractive and this was a memorable birthday meal.

I have been to this restaurant many times and it is never a let down. It only serves fish which is a bonus. The quality of the fish is always first class it is a real gem for a lovely Norfolk village

Simply unmissable! Beautiful, perfectly cooked fish in a delightful setting close to the water in Horning. Nigel and the team have created the perfect fish restaurant with some very fine wines (especially the desert wines...) Recommend the Skate....unless lobster is in season!

There is absolutely nothing I can fault with this restaurant. Family run, friendly and comfortable serving exquisite, first class food. If you like fish this is the most wonderful restaurant.

We came to the restaurant to celebrate the marriage of our friends and wanted it to be special. It was. The menu was exciting and varied. The food was cooked perfectly. The service was friendly. We had a wonderful evening. My only slight criticisms: Being November, it was a little bit chilly/draughty and ideally, I would like to see one... More

This is still the best place to eat in Horning but we felt that standards have slipped since our previous visits in the last two years. The restaurant was fairly busy but not full and whilst we were speedily seated and our order taken the service levels then became less attentive.. The first course came as expected and was very...

Found the food, service and ambience of this restaurant that having dined for the first time on the Tuesday we immediately rebooked for the Thursday night. We were not disappointed. First class menu, and as lovers of fish the variety, actual cooking and presentation made us wish we were staying longer as we would have undoubtedly have booked again. Cannot... More
